UNFPA 'worried about unsafe sex in Fiji'

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) is worried about the lack of sex protection - such as condoms - being used in Fiji.

Dirk Jena, pacific sub-regional office director and representative, said those taking part in sex need to make sure they use precautions, the Fiji Times reports.

"Young people should be careful of their peers and sexual activity should be safe. The UNFPA is concerned with this particular issue affecting youths today," he added.

The specialist observed individuals want to make sure they do everything in their power to prevent them from catching HIV.

For those unlucky enough to get a sexually transmitted infection, it may affect their ability to procreate in later life.

This means individuals have to be extra careful when having intimate relations and may want to buy condoms.

Earlier this week, people in Telford were told they will be able to get free chlamydia testing as part of an initiative by the Terrence Higgins Trust.
